WITCHSTARS (UK/Online Premiere)
Dir: Federico Sfascia. Starring: Guglielmo Favilla, Raffaele Ottolenghi, Giulia Zeetti. Italy (2018) 89mins
On Halloween night, a night of secret debauchery away from their girlfriends, four teenagers gather together to imbibe in class A drugs, B grade movies & C level prostitutes. Little do they know that karma and punishment is going to be far more morally questionable; as at the same time as their party, a comet has crash landed on earth and bringing with it a debaucherous group of aliens.
From possessed pumpkins to tentacled tyrants, this calzone of crazy brings to mind both Raimi & Tsukamoto. Leave your sense of good taste at the door, as director Federico Sfascia is about to take you on a hyperkinetic and splattertastic ride of bad taste and low budget punk anarchy.
